You don't need to pay for this because it is too easy to do.
1) Download the files of the forum to your localhost and do a backup in the cpanel and download it.
2) Change the DNS settings of the domain, update the DNS to the new host's DNS. After the dns was propagated (usually takes some hours, but can take up to 2 days, it depends on the host and the extension of the domain)
3) Upload the files to the new host
4) Create a new database and import the old database from the backup file
5) Change the details of your mysql server in the inc/config.php file.
6) Clear your cookies because you could have problems [optional]

I have made a human (easy to understand) "tutorial" so you should transfer you website without problems but if you still need help contact me and I will move your website for free.
